The Friday Funhouse

Hey not only is that favorite time of year — Lang’s Auction Time — this Halloween weekend, we also get Crossroads Angling Auction as well. Whew. That’s a lot of auctioning! Crossroads has some great stuff, so we will jump in and do our top 12 items from this upcoming sale.

The Video of the Week

This is a cool video of fly fishing in Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada. Super cool. Note the dropper fly used on the first fish …

12 Crossroads Items I Would Buy If Only I Could Afford Them

This awesome Julius vom Hofe Cosmic Reel is pretty cool!

I like this Stye B Yawman & Erbe Automatic Fly Reel!

Frederick vom Hofe is the best.

A Meek No. 10 is just oh so rare!

This casting trophy won by Art Neu is pretty great.

This broadside from the legendary John Krider’s Sportsman’s Depot in Philadelphia is just great.

The book Useppa Inn by the Isaac Walton Club is one of the rarest tarpon books out there.

This is a very early Edward vom Hofe catalog from 1896!

Love the old Knickerbocker tackle boxes.

This Pepper in the box is super nice.

You really don’t see these Wright & McGill 1930s flies very often.

The artistry of Earl Parker Gresh is terrific.
